Alexa Gets the Last Word

At breakfast this morning, for no particular reason, I wondered aloud what the origin was of the Bacon-Lettuce-Tomato sandwich, affectionately known as the BLT. [Don’t let on, but we were having them for breakfast, one of my favorite meals] My wife put the question to Alexa who advised that the sandwich became popular after WWII. Not that helpful.

My wife then asked Alexa, “Do you love me?”

Alexa responded with “I have not figured out the human concept of love.”

This was too much of a challenge, so I asked, “Alexa, do you hate me?” Alexa responded, “Yes, I think that’s why I am.”

Clearly, Alexa was experiencing some confusion about philosophical concepts.

After we stopped chuckling, my wife asked, “Alexa, do you hate me?” to which Alexa now responded, “I think you’re alright.”

I couldn’t let that pass, so I asked the question again, “Alexa, do you hate me.”

Alexa said, “I think you’re magnificent.”

The end.
